post #81 of 83

I already made my point - maybe I could elaborate more but if you don't get it ... oh well shrug.gif. Maybe you haven't read much of the threads about FF on here?

"The bolded sounds very similar to arguments I've heard about parents who FF. "It's okay if xyz" but "it's not okay if abc"... Substitute "breastfeeding" for ""routine checkups" in the last line. I've heard that too. I don't think it's fair or right to making sweeping generalizations like that in either case. 

 

BTW I know plenty of ppl who go to ALL the well baby visits and do not vaccinate or selectively vaccinate. We've been to every single one."

The difference between children who don't attend well-baby visits due to lack of access to proper healthcare (regardless of vax status) is that they are not receiving preventative care. As a prior link showed, many NON-vaxers have decent sized incomes, are white, and are educated. They also have access to healthcare (mostly as a result of having good income) and being educated are more likely to spot developmental problems even when they choose not to go to well visits.

 

When someone lacks access to healthcare, they are generally not educated, have low incomes, and cannot attend well baby visits - the child misses preventative care of all kinds, the parents may not realize if a child is behind developmentally (may not understand what the normal range for dev. milestones, etc), and if they do realize it, may not be able to seek early intervention (even if they qualify, if they don't know its there they can't use it).

 

FF? Has nothing to do with vax. Seriously.

You know what it's okay. I'm bowing out of this. My point was never the FF and vaxing are the same - it was more about judgments ppl make and I was drawing a parallel. I don't have the energy or the time to make what I want to say clear / understood.  Have fun! thumb.gif

 

P.S. I don't disagree with you about the below.
